Sathyamangalam or Satyamangalam is a city and a municipality in Erode district in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It lies on the north bank of the Bhavani River, a tributary of the Kaveri. Sathyamangalam forms a taluk of Erode District. Sathyamangalam was formerly part of Coimbatore District, but became part of Erode District when the district was constituted in 1979.
 
Sathyamangalam is also the name of a Reserve Forest under the Wildlife Protection Act, 1973. It is contiguous with the Biligirirangan Temple Wildlife Sanctuary to the north in neighbouring Chamarajanagar District of Karnataka, and together forms a vital corridor for faunal movements, mainly elephants. As of 2001 India census, Sathyamangalam had a population of 33,738. The males constitute 51 percent of the population and females 49 percent. Sathyamangalam has an average literacy rate of 67 percent, higher than the national average of 59.5 percent, male literacy is 74 percent, and female literacy is 61 percent. In Sathyamangalam, 9 percent of the population is under 6 years of age.

Sathyamangalam experiences a boom with day tourists, owing to the clear air, town character with rich culture, high quality of life and conspicuously original history. The picturesque scenery, the majesty of nature, the slow pace of life, and the welcoming nature of its people also combine to make this region one of the most important tourist attractions in India.
